When & Where
Augustana College is a private, selective liberal arts college located on a 115-acre campus near the Mississippi River in Rock Island, Illinois. Visitors rave about the beautiful wooded campus, with its rolling, river valley landscape and winding pathways along the slough. It truly is an oasis within the city.
Our focus on creating a well-rounded experience for our students has generated an environment of learning that goes way beyond the classroom. From the moment students set foot on campus, we provide them with the tools that will help them be successful here at Augustana and beyond. In addition to working closely with their professors on special projects and research, students will benefit from visiting scholars and lecturers as well as international study opportunities.
The Augustana community offers our students opportunities to be more than scholars, through hundreds of student interest groups and activities, tools and resources to discover their paths in life, and outstanding NCAA Division III athletic programs. In fact, Augustana ranks fifth among all colleges and universities for total number of Academic All-Americans. This environment that cultivates successful students also extends beyond our campus through community programming as well as special networking and social opportunities for our alumni.
